Course Description

This course will provide delegates with a complete and practical understanding of how to apply the PRINCE2 6th Edition methodology in any number of different scenarios. It includes the preparation for, and the sitting of, the examination leading to the PRINCE2 6th Edition Practitioner Certificate, which is highly prized among employers and project managers alike.

The course objectives include the practical implementation of the method and attention is paid as to how the method can be varied to suit many different types of projects. Care is also taken to show delegates how to ensure the administration of the method is at a level appropriate to the project.

Target Student

Project Managers, Project Consultants, Team Managers, Project Planners, Project Estimators, Project Support Staff, Project Assurance Staff or anyone with an interest in the practical management of a PRINCE2 project.


There are no prerequisites in terms of project management experience, although the experience in managing a project will be a distinct advantage. Prior to the course, each delegate will be sent the PRINCE2 manual, suggested pre-course work, and a reading list, in order that they become familiar with the PRINCE2 concepts, scenarios, and questions. It is essential for your success on this course that the pre-course work is completed. A large proportion of this pre-course work may be omitted where the delegate has achieved the Foundation Certificate.

Delivery Method

Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
